Info for Telling All My Secrets
Mitchell Tenpenny will release his debut album, Telling All My Secrets, on Friday, Dec. 14. The album will include his breakthrough debut single, “Drunk Me,” which has earned more than 77 million on-demand streams and has surpassed 500,000 downloads in the U.S. The title track “Telling All My Secrets” is available now with pre-order of the project.
“The secret is out,” Tenpenny shared directly with fans yesterday. “So thankful to finally share what I’ve been working on with y’all.”
The Nashville native has long been familiar with Music Row: he spent much of his childhood playing in some of country music’s most hallowed halls under the watchful eye of his grandmother, industry veteran and first female CEO of Sony/ATV Music Publishing Donna Hilley. Watching his hardworking grandmother (and those around her) gave Tenpenny some serious work ethic. The singer/songwriter wrote over 50 songs in preparation for Telling All My Secrets and painstakingly whittled the list down to 11 songs. Three of those were included on his self-titled EP release: “Drunk Me,” “Alcohol You Later,” and the polarizing track “Bitches.”
“I’m proud of the success of a track like ‘Bitches.’ It is always a favorite at our shows but for a new listener I understand it could be a bit divisive. The song isn’t about girls or guys, it is about cheaters and liars and haters and bullies. I hate bullies and I hate people that pick on others,” says Tenpenny of the song. “Sometimes there is only one word for a certain emotion. In this case it was bitch. I’m excited to ‘share all my secrets’ on this album so fans get the full picture of what I’m about.”
is an industry insider/outlier. Someone who has a local’s appreciation for the origins of Nashville and keen focus on what happens outside of Music City.
The rugged individualist operates with complete confidence and comfort in the space between contradictory themes. He is a creative thinker with a keen business sense. He is fiercely competitive, but is equally vocal proponent for his industry colleagues. He finds inspiration in music as diverse as Michael Jackson and the Oak Ridge Boys.
And none of that seems the least bit unusual or out of whack to the Nashville native with an industry pedigree (his grandmother was industry legend Donna Hilley who shaped the musical landscape of country music as CEO of Sony/ATV Music Publishing). He lives his life and his budding musical career on both ends of the spectrum.
He’s authentic thanks in large part to Tenpenny’s fearless skill as a songwriter, which includes a Top 5 hit for Granger Smith, “If the Boot Fits,” and time spent opening for a variety of influential artists including Smith, Dustin Lynch (Ride of Die Tour), Maren Morris (Renegade Revival Run), Jake Owen, Brett Young, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Dustin Lynch, Gary Allan, and others.
Multiplicity is also reflected in his sound. Tenpenny’s diverse musical taste and soulful vocal delivery were developed after years of singing harmonies in church and later honed pounding drums and scolding the mic as the “lead screamer” in angsty high-school, hard-core rock bands.
His musical trajectory solidified when he made his momma cry.
“I played my first country song and my momma started crying and I thought, ‘OK, this is what I need to do,’” he said. “It was a song called ‘Be My Baby’ and it was terrible, but it had a melody, and a story, and I wasn’t screaming. To see that emotion from her was awesome.”
It was a turning point. He said, “I started writing stories from where I come from rather than where I thought I wanted to be.”
Where he comes from was fertile ground with musical influences as disparate as Jackson, John Mayer, the Oaks, and R. Kelly. The resulting sound on his Riser House/Columbia Nashville debut is current, edgy, and grounded in themes intrinsic to the South.
He cites Mayer as an artist who can morph his vocal interpretation to fit each song, rather than letting his voice dictate the delivery. And that vocal mastery is evident in his onstage delivery where he is equally comfortable with an acoustic guitar as he is backed by his full band. In either case, what he craves is the personal connection.
Tenpenny – his actual name and not a contrivance or a countrified 50 Cent – isn’t striving for perfection, but something genuine.
“I remember the first time the crowd was singing back to us, and I turned to my band told them, ‘They are only doing this because they believe it,’” he recalled. “It’s the best feeling in the world and the most humbling thing.”
Of special note…
Riser House/Columbia Nashville’s Mitchell Tenpenny impacted country radio March 26 with his current single “Drunk Me,” and it became the best debut by a new country artist in two years. In fact, Tenpenny’s label mate Maren Morris was the last to debut with as many first-week radio adds with “My Church” in January of 2016.
The same week, “Drunk Me” made streaming chart history by achieving the highest entry ever for a new artist on Nielsen’s On Demand Audio Core Country Streaming chart. The single achieved #39 following an increase of 249% for a total of 1.5 million streams.
This album contains no booklet.
